So what do April Showers bring you?

I Spy YNS Saturday – Call the Doctor

This week we spied a get well card made by the Wizardessofcards on Instagram.

The doctor and nurse look great layered over the pattern created using the stamps from the Call the Doctor set.  The touches of blue pull together this primarily black and white card.  This card made us smile and will definitely bring a smile to the recipient’s face.

See more of the Wizardess of Cards work on Instagram @wizardessofcards.


We are always on the lookout for creations made with YNS products.  Be sure to tag your photos with #yournextstamp.

Happy Stamping!
